EVANSVILLE, Ind. - A man Evansville police say shot himself in front of an officer preparing to question him in a criminal confinement case has died from his gunshot wound.
Eighteen-year-old Kaveonta Lee died Sunday night at an Evansville hospital. Authorities say Lee shot himself in the head Sunday afternoon as an officer approached him along an Evansville street.
The Evansville Courier & Press reports police were called to the scene after an 18-year-old woman told authorities an armed man had held her against her will overnight at an Evansville apartment.
Police say Lee matched the description of that man. An officer who spotted Lee walking along a road says that as he approached the suspect Lee pulled a handgun from his waistband and shot himself in the head.
